Notes

Notes: This is a liberated bootleg that sounds pretty damn good for how old the show is. According to Deadbase, this is the complete show except for Dancin from the end of the first set. If you want to hear some old Dead, I highly recommend this disc.


Note: SPEED/PITCH CORRECTED

Tracks 1-3: -22 cents
Tracks 4-5: -37 cents
Tracks 6-7: -40 cents
Tracks 8-9: -43 cents
Track 10: -46 cents

Also reduced the red-stripe @ 16khz in tracks 7-10 with the FFT filter to eliminate some of the hum.

These fixes were done using Cool Edit Pro. All files then re-encoded to FLAC(8). The md5 for the original shn files is included.

Subject: A great band, for amateurs.
Is this a promising young act? Definitely! Is it really, really good? Aside from moments of greatness, meh

Oh, jeez, I cannot believe it's been 45 years. As just a foolish and wide-eyed senior in high school was I accompanied by buddies Jim and Ray. We were looking for a little "action" and had begun habituating the scene to try to pick up wanton and stray hippie chicks. (We never did -- too shy)

This discovery (of attending this show) was as a result of finding old journals that were (I always presumed) lost -- buried in the boxes of junk my mom had been storing in her garage. When she passed away I was entrusted with the unenviable task of going thru her effects.

Despite the contrary, this show was not broadcast on KSAN, but KMPX 106.9 FM. KSAN did not come into existence presenting a rock format until 1969 when KMPX went belly-up and ran "ocean waves hitting beach" 24/7.

Anyway, the Fillmore was not crowded that night and it was ridiculously easy to move around. We even rested our chins upon the stage -- a common occurrence back in those days.

Love this version of Cold Rain & Snow. The entire show is very high energy. Someone offered us LSD but we didn't swallow.

Never, never, never in our wildest imaginations did we ever think the Grateful Dead were going to enjoy such longevity.

And never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I was going to make it to 62.

Someone once asked me how I survived the 60's. I replied that I never inhaled. (Can't believe I just wrote that)

Who remembers Magnolia Thunderpussy? Anyone remember Magnolia Thunderpussy? Cyber noogie to the first one who answers correctly.

The magic number they are talking about is the number of beats they use to start BIODTL. "Bill Sommers" was supposedly the alias on Kreutzmann's fake ID at the time...

Wasn't able to post on the Charlie Miller upload from this date, so my review will stay in this thread.

This is the setlist as it appears on the earliest versions of tapes for this show, although the introduction and Cold Rain And Snow probably reside before Pain In My Heart... Just maybe.

The magic number tonight is 10... No, 11. I might actually be deaf because BIODTL sounds like it's regular 4:4 style, unless it's not the time signature they were referring to. Please do correct and explain it to me if I am missing something within that. The only Bill Summers I know of is a percussionist, but of the Latin Jazz conga style... Just a joke Bill Graham?.. Sounds like Kreutzmann to me. Another The Same Thing, and a correction to make from a previous comment on a version of this... I mentioned that TST was possibly inspiration for Little Red Rooster (which is still possible depending on which was released first), when Willie Dixon wrote both tunes... Knew there had to be a reason they sounded so similar. Really seem to be on during the song. Disappointing cut-off after Dancin', but good it waited until later to do that... Couldn't have gotten much better than that. Earliest Smokestack I've heard (I believe)... Love that song... Love the way they jam it into King Bee. Fantastic show.
